This is a really special opportunity for executive producers in the Asia Pacific and Middle East to get together to discuss the trends and challenges facing their businesses.
The World Producers Summit at AdFest 2019 will be chaired by Steve Davies, chief executive of the Advertising Producers Association (APA) and executive vice president of the Commercial Film Producers of Europe (CFPE) together with Francois Chilot, honorary chairman of CFPE and president of the Young Director Award.
“The purpose of the World Producers Summit is to bring the region’s top producers together with the goal of finding solutions to common issues. This is a chance to get ahead with your knowledge. Is there something happening to the production business in the US? China? The UK? Or Brazil? If these changes come into effect in your market, how can you be ready for the opportunities that might bring?” Davies commented.
The first World Producers Summit at AdFest was held in 2012. The World Producers Summit also takes place in Cannes every June and is created by the Association of Independent Commercial Producers, CFPE and APA.
“It is not often you get EPs and producers from all around Asia in one room. It was good to discuss the issues each market faces and share insights on how one another are dealing with it. It was also great to make some more contacts from other countries as we look to production solutions outside of our markets,” stated Corey Esse, managing director and executive producer at Finch Australia, who attended last year’s Summit.
Places are limited. Only 40 owners or employees of an independent production company can attend, with just one representative per company permitted. Agency subsidiaries are not eligible. It’s free to attend, but you must be a registered delegate of AdFest 2019.
